My wife and I have enjoyed two glorious, kid-free weeks.

We needed the break.  We had a week off from work, which we enjoyed thoroughly, doing things that would have bored Danielle to tears.  The second week we spent working, but even it felt somewhat like a vacation because things were so quiet.

Unbelievably, Danielle came home yesterday with a good attitude.  We were pleasantly shocked, because usually when she returns home from visits with friends or family, she comes back with a really terrible attitude.  Usually, when she comes back, we are treated to name-calling, and being told how much she hates us, wishes she could live elsewhere, and how we are her worst nightmare.

We got none of that last night, which was a pleasant surprise.  I think it's the first time she's come home from a visit away without being completely ugly.


Still, given our history, I can't help but wonder how long the good attitude will last.
